Mom to a previously happy and cheerful 3 year old. My boyfriend (not my sons father, but the only Daddy he has ever known) moved out of our house last week after living with us for the past 9 months. My son is devastated. Today was his first day back at pre-school since his Daddy left, and he got in trouble for hitting and kicking the other kids and the teacher. I want to minimize the frustration and confusion he is feeling, and I need your opinions. My boyfriend stayed away for 5 days, but then came for a visit. He wants to come back a few times a week to see us. There is a good chance he may come back home eventually. Is it going to be more traumatic to my son to have his daddy out of his life completely, or to have a part-time daddy, while we try and figure things out?
